1961 Flat Floor Series 1 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Pumpkin Orange Head DHC LHD

1961 Series 1 Jaguar E-Type Roadster in Carmen Red with a Black Interior for sale. Chassis Number: 875824

An opportunity to own an early, flat floor roadster with its rare, original "pumpkin orange" coloured cylinder head engine, used from excess XK150 stock. The car has undergone a comprehensive full nut and bolt restoration with over 3,000 man-hours invested in its meticulous details. As a Concours restoration, no nut or bolt placement has gone unchecked. The full restoration has been documented in our 'the 100 Point E-type: A Concours Restoration' blog and supported by a photographic library. A true original example of possibly the most iconic car of its era in show-winning condition.

We would strongly recommend a visit to our new showroom in Beaulieu to view this car.
